Re: Oils supplements

Yes, I've been advised to give Vitamin E occasionally (in my case, about once a week) with the salmon oil as well. This doesn't have to do with coat, but it's my salmon oil testimony nevertheless... When I first got Harley, I gave him a salmon oil softgel (Trader Joe's, 1000mg, molecularly distilled...

Re: It's Lymphoma Large Cell Type.

Wow. I'm so very very sorry.

For what it's worth, I think that what will trump your grief, eventually, is the realization that all the joy Ella brought you over the years was totally worth the pain you're feeling now.

Again, I'm so sorry.

Re: Severely obese lab...

Are there dog pools near you, or places he can swim? Swimming would be easier on his joints, and the lab in him might really enjoy it...The water will add resistance and take off stress from his joints and could be a lot of fun for all involved. You beat me to this suggestion. Swimming can burn a t...

Re: penis freezing?

Harley's a metrosexual. He never leaves the house without his lipstick or his coin-purse (the empty sack where his nuts used to be).

Re: Craigslist Made Me Do It

Thanks, everybody. He IS a real cutie, and what a people person. I mean, Zoey is friendly towards people and stuff, but, well, even as I write this, Harley's got his head rested in my lap, while Zoey's fixated on the lizards in the back yard. (That pretty much sums up the personality difference.) jt...

Craigslist Made Me Do It

After reading post after post from Pima County Animal Control about all the dogs that have until Specific Date at 5:00p.m., and after figuring that I had the time, space, money and energy to do it, I "got pushed over the edge" :) and contacted a local rescue about fostering a dog. To keep ...

Zoey is an avid p-mailer on walks. And she's had numerous "accidents" in the house for at least a couple different reasons. If she doesn't recognize the scent (e.g., I had just washed the bed sheets and comforter and it was all new scent and she hopped on the bed and peed on it) or she fee...

Two weeks ago Zoey started limping after playing/wrestling with a doggie pal. I kept an eye on her and and it continued on and off through the week. I finally took her to the vet, who checked her out and said, "It's likely a shoulder sprain" which is apparently a very common injury. He gav...

The HS of Southern Arizona offers a rattlesnake avoidance course. The instructors use two de-fanged rattlesnakes, place the dog downwind from them, and when the dog gets close, use a shock collar to avert the dog. From what I've heard, it's extremely effective. Z and I are registered for it in early...

On Sunday I gave Zoey a nice, big, fresh, desirable knucklebone. She promptly buried it in the back yard.

Thanks to everyone for your replies! I will definitely put Zoey on heartworm preventative before heading up north. I'll also think about keeping her on it year-round. I try my hardest to keep her off unnecessary meds, and, again, most dogs here in AZ are NOT on HW preventative. However HW itself sou...
